Cool stations Les.

I was at an auction awhile back in NYS or New England and there was a collection of about 40 different '30s-'40s toy stations- tin litho and masonite.

Here are two newer ones I picked up this weekend.

Looking for photos, etc from 60s era Shell-A-Rama gas station and Pal's Diner, Rt. 17 Mahwah, NJ
& US or state highway signs, shields, route markers

Wow, nice collection Les!

I have a couple different 50's tin Texaco stations that I need to set up and display.

Thanks guys, here are a couple more I have. These are probably my favorites. It's pretty cool that the bottom of the box is the platform you build the gas station on.

This is the Jane Francis Gulf station. I don't know if it was a give-a-way or sold in stores, maybe someone can chime in on this. It's pretty cool all of this in a small box. It even has a garage door!

Some close-ups. Box is not in the best of shape but it appears that it was never used.

The Jane Francis Gulf station is as cool as can be, especially in not assembled or played with condition.

Most of my stuff is packed up from the move. As soon as I unpack them I will post pic's. It's probably going to take me a couple years to set up.
